Shivers of delight raced through Cornelia Rose's entire body as she thought, Stroll Flirtation Walk with my escort, unchaperoned? How could this be permitted, much less condoned?
“This is a beautiful story and the author brings to life a period of history with its traits and way of life.... Flirtation on the Hudson is real; a narrative that features elaborately developed characters and adventures that will keep readers entertained. JF Collen combines humor and wit in a work that is hugely entertaining. I enjoyed every bit of this story.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, Christian Sia (5 STARS)
Cornelia Rose decides early in life, almost instinctively, not to allow anyone to limit her to the few choices available to women in New York in the 1850s. Marry well and become a proper lady—is that all I can do? She surreptitiously pursues learning 'not meant for young ladies,' and begins the journey to become a midwife.
Flirtatious and sexy, Cornelia attracts suitors everywhere she goes. Flooded with invitations after her 'unofficial' debut, her courtships take a dramatic turn when invited to the West Point Military Academy as the guest of a cadet. Will her romantic escapades compromise her choices? Who will decide her future?
EVOLVED PUBLISHING PRESENTS a journey back in time to the 1800s, from New York society and the West Point Military Academy, to the Old West pioneering spirit, as one woman seeks fulfillment in her life. [DRM-Free]

About the Author
EDITOR: I love reading. Books have always been a part of my environment and my life. I taught English Literature for many years and my favorite part was watching students find their voice in writing. I edited at Weekly Reader for about a year prior to taking time off to have children. They are now writing their own stories, and reading as many books as their mama! I manage an independent bookstore in Chappaqua, New York called Scattered Books, which is my second home. I travel often with my family, and friends, and always make sure I find the bookstores wherever we go.
